The 4th this year was a bit sad for me. Riley & Preston were gone to California with Grandma Katie and Jon was working. Pyper, Ellie and I tried to make the best of it. We went to the Salina City celebrations. Pyper did most of the activities. Here she is going down the big slide. Here she is inside a big bubble! This was very cool! She did this one twice. She played planco, put the ring on the sucker, the measuring tape/ping pong ball game. As you can see she came away with some great prizes! To be honest, I think Ellie mostly just got hot. It was a very hot and humid day! We went to the parade that night. It started at 5:00. A storm was starting to brew. As we were walking to find a place to watch the parade, we ran in to this hot police man working this corner. He let us hang out with him for the parade.
He even helped Pyper get some candy!
Just as the parade was ending the rain and wind kicked in. We made a mad dash to the Yukon and made it just in time.
